Does the job - perfectly
on 19 January 2010
My two-year-old MacBook Pro still runs fast and has a great screen, but the battery life was becoming ridiculous. I couldn't work on it for longer than an hour - an HOUR - away from the mains recently, and realised this was just absurd. A not very mobile laptop. And imagine my distaste, after having shelled out for a very decent computer, that a replacement battery would cost £100.
Finding this OEM version of the battery was a godsend. Believe me, it looks absolutely identical to the official Apple battery that costs twice as much. The only difference is the absence of an Apple label. Otherwise, this is the real deal - it fits in perfectly, has the same LED battery level indicators (never saw the point of them, being on the underside, but there you go), and once installed we're back to almost 4 hours of battery life. Like the good old days, when you first bought the laptop.
Battery technology *really* needs to change, but in the meantime I'm really grateful that this product exists. Absolutely recommend this product, and delivery was pretty quick too, without environmentally unfriendly overly fancy packaging. Bargain.
